'Promised Land' Blu-ray Dated and Detailed
Tags: Universal, Disc Announcements (all tags)
The drama directed by Gus Van Sant will have a Blu-ray release in April.
In an early announcement to retailers, Universal is readying 'Promised Land' for Blu-ray on April 23.
Matt Damon stars as corporate salesman Steve Butler, whose journey from farm boy to big-time player takes an unexpected detour when he lands in the rural town of McKinley with partner Sue Thomason, played by Frances McDormand. There to offer much-needed relief to the economically hard-hit residents, the pair begin strategically obtaining drilling rights to the home owners' properties. What seems like an easy job for the duo, though, quickly becomes complicated by a respected schoolteacher (Hal Holbrook), a slick environmental activist (John Krasinski) and Butler's interest in a local woman (Rosemarie DeWitt). As they grapple with a surprising array of open hearts and closed doors, the outsiders soon discover the strength of an American small town poised at a crossroads.
The Blu-ray/DVD/Ultraviolet Digital Copy combo pack will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include deleted scenes and a making-of featurette.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.98.
